Suzanne Wilson’s Best Bets


If this week’s 50th anniversary of one of the greatest speeches ever made piques your curiosity about the life of Martin Luther King Jr., there are plenty of biographies to choose from. Among them is “Let the Trumpet Sound,” by Stephen B. Oates, who taught history at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. For a sweeping, three-volume bio, check out Taylor Branch’s “Parting the Waters,” “Pillar of Fire,” and “At Canaan’s Edge.”


The Granby Tomato Festival is a celebration of August’s bounty. It happens Aug. 24, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Red Fire Farm, 7 Carver St., in Granby. Live music, crafts, kids activities, cooking demos — and, of course, tomato tastings.
